Bristol Brunel Lions President Duncan White along with Vice President Julia O’Neill enjoyed another special evening with the children and staff of Avon Youth Club in Lawrence Weston. Their ongoing support is much appreciated by all the club members, helping with everyday running costs, purchase of sports equipment, provision of refreshments etc. Club leader Tash promised to spend the money wisely and thanked Bristol Brunel Lions for their generosity and continued support.

It was agreed at the meeting that the members of both clubs would take part in a litter pick on the 17th April starting at the Youth club and finishing at Lawrence Weston Community Farm with a picnic lunch. This will be the second such event the clubs have participated in.

Bristol Brunel Lions believe that the service provided by both Avon Youth Club and Lawrence Weston Community Farm to the local young people of the area is vital for their enjoyment, development and well being.
